Argentine-born Fauve is a self-described Artician, comfortable in any media that best serves the story. He produces, directs, sings, writes, designs, sculpts and paints.
Performing live internationally alongside his mother, Suni Paz, since the age of seven, Fauve studied music, opera, and acting, discovering outlets for creative expression through art and song. Folk music, melodic classic rock and blues, lyrical content, civil rights, anti-war efforts, the struggles of farmworkers, and passionate sociopolitical participation were hallmarks of his upbringing.
Fauve comes from a long line of creatives and professionals. His mother, Suni Paz, is an award-winning activist folk singer/songwriter, author, and educator (CMN Magic Penny Award, NEA National Heritage Fellowship Award) on the Smithsonian Folkways label. His (late) father, Carlos Fernandez Fauvety, was a filmmaker, designer, poet and musician.
As an artist, Fauve is known for his mega murals, such as the Nike Bo Jackson mural at Hollywood and Vine (the opening shot of Pretty Woman) and the 400-foot-long “LA Marathon 2026” mural, as well as art direction of iconic Los Angeles venues, The Edison, Clifton’s and Cole’s. He is also known for his conceptual art direction (Universal Studios, Singapore), and his fine art (Tupac Shakur’s commemorative album "R U Still Down?"). He has also appeared three times on Star Search and in the LA Arts District documentary, The American Hotel.
OUT OCT 6, 2020 Ramiro Fauve / Where Rivers Cross Vols. 1 & 2 is a 26-song double album of new Fauve material. Vol. 1 is perhaps the more pop/rock serving, Vol. 2 is a bit more downhome. The production aim was to retain the purity and simplicity of the music. This album is a nod to his Americana music influences, such as Woody Guthrie, The Weavers, Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs; bluegrass, rockabilly and Southern Rock mentors such as Bill Monroe, Carl Perkins, the Everly Brothers, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and the spectrum of flavors that is American music.
Ramiro Fauve has released three albums to date:
Ramiro Fauve / Where Rivers Cross Vols. 1 & 2
Fauve / Outta the Blue
and the progressive rock odyssey, O (Ramiro Fauve & Sam Glaser) / See What You Want.
He has also directed/produced several videos on YouTube.
